What is a dome-type camera
Can you proudly say that your home is your castle? What makes it a fortress? Is there something you would like to add to make it even more impregnable? CCTV cameras may be the final touch or the first step when trying to upgrade your home's security level.
There are at least two options to choose from when getting security cameras – dome cameras or bullet cameras. Dome cameras got their name due to their circular dome shape. Usually, you can find them mounted to ceilings inside buildings. Bullet cameras got their names from their cylindrical shape. As a rule, you can find them on walls inside and outside.
However, when you're done with that choice, you will have to go deeper and choose which type of dome or bullet cameras you would like. Let's take a closer look at dome cameras, their main features, disadvantages and main types of this kind of cameras.

Pros and cons of dome cameras
Types of dome cameras
- Pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) dome cameras allow you to monitor large areas and remotely adjust zoom and lens direction. For example, if you see something or someone suspicious in the far corner, you can zoom and check what exactly is going on there. This type of camera is great for interior use in public spaces with a high number of visitors, like business centers, hotel lobbies, stations, parking lots, etc.
- Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) dome cameras are very easy to install. They require a single Ethernet cable to power the camera and launch it to the network.
- Outdoor Dome Cameras are great for preventing vandalism and theft. However, it's advisable to choose a camera with infrared illuminators, so its benefits won't end after the sun goes down.
- 4K Dome Cameras provide a high resolution and unbelievable levels of detail, which is particularly good for retail stores where security personnel need to check everything carefully.
